Asphalt pros

When many people think about roofs, they automatically think of asphalt. It’s is a very popular roofing material in the U.S. because asphalt shingles are one of the least inexpensive materials, they’re widely available, and they come in a wide range of colors to suit any home. Asphalt shingles work well for many homes’ architectural styles. Prices can range from about $70-$120 per shingle, and when installed well by the experts at Guardian Roofs, asphalt shingles will usually last for 20-25 years. The cost savings, style flexibility, and abundant availability make asphalt an appealing option for many people.

Asphalt cons

It wouldn’t be very honest of us to share the pros of asphalt without detailing potential drawbacks as well. Here are some cons you should be aware of while considering whether asphalt is the right material for your residential or commercial roof.

Asphalt also doesn’t provide the insulation other materials provide so it may not be the most eco-friendly choice. Warm and cool energy may leak from your roof more than it would if other materials were used on your roof. Additionally, asphalt has a shorter lifespan than other roofing materials have, and the quality of asphalt shingles can vary brand to brand. However, Guardian Roofs only carries high-quality roofing materials that you can count on for many years to come. If you choose to have asphalt shingles installed on your roof, you can rest assured that when you work with Guardian Roofs, your roof will have the longest possible lifespan.
